The purpose of the study was to find out the effects of ladder training on selected skill performance variables of school football players. To achieve the purpose of the present study, forty football school players from Tamilnadu were selected as subjects at random and their ages ranged from 14 to 17 years. The subjects were divided into four equal groups of twenty football players each. The study was formulated as a true random group design, consisting of a pre-test and post-test. The subjects

The group I underwent ladder training group II acted as a control group. The experimental group participated the training for a period of twelve weeks and the control group did not participated in any training programme. Paired "t" test was applied to test the significance of mean gains made in each of the variables by the two groups. The ladder training group produced significant improvement in skill performance variables. The 't' values of the selected variables have reached the significant level.
